Wow!

Nice find Boardumb! This game is awesome! It's like pool meets mini golf meets pinball in a great retro neon 80's techno package. You get shown each level before it begins and you can tap and drag and look at the level before every single shot. The control scheme is pretty flawless and there is a crap ton to unlock and hidden areas and all sorts of fun things to do.

The best thing is, and wait for it....... It does have an energy system, ads, and a diamond system BUT these devs know what they are doing. For $4.99 you can buy the package of 250 diamonds which basically disables all ads and gives you infinite energy. On top of this there is Facebook connect cloud save so you won't lose your purchases. So for me this is perfect. I couldn't ask for more.

The game really is fun. It's well made too I haven't had any issues at all. I've already played the first 8 levels and I just want to keep going. I really have to give this one five stars.

I'm loving this game as well. I hope more people discover its stylish graphics, sound and 80s vibe. It's so pretty and polished, and I get a goofy grin on my face when I play it.

Not nearly as good as I expected. I wouldn't call it bad, but the controls feel really loose and it's hard to tell how much strength you are putting into a shot. It's also very difficult to be precise or make accurate shots as the aimer seems to move around. I make what looks like a straight shot and it goes all wonky on me. Tighten up the aiming and add a gauge that shows how much power I'm putting in to the shot and I'm sold.

Excellent game in my opinion, developers fixed bugs and added GC achievements.
